We started more than 15 years ago with cutting edge medical education. Hippo (like Hippocrates, not like the large semi-aquatic mammal that flips your canoe) was created as a response to the typical, old-school, boring, and ineffective medical education we’ve all had to endure over many decades. You know the flavor: pay a truckload of money to enroll in a course, pay more for travel, food, and hotel and then wake up early to cram yourself into a little conference room to watch endless hours of boring slides by mediocre presenters. We’ve all done it. Nowadays you can even buy that same course recorded onto 40 CD’s or watch a poor-quality recording online. What fun…
Hippo Education is the opposite. We’re having fun and so will you. We take the best and most engaging educators on the planet, bring them to our amazing studio or another fantastic venue, and let them shine and laugh. Then we combine all of their excellent work into courses and audio programs you can enjoy any way you like, to reinforce your education in learning-theory-based ways. You get the best education available in visual, audio, written, and question forms. So, if you love medicine, learning, and laughing then search no further – Hippo is where you belong!
Over time, and thanks to your feedback and amazing support, we’ve been able to impact medical education in a big way. Today, in addition to our pediatrics board review and pediatrics podcast, we offer a board review course for emergency medicine, a comprehensive pediatric emergency medicine curriculum, an outstanding AAPA PANCE/PANRE review course for PAs, PA self-assessments in general practice and emergency medicine, and two additional Reviews and Perspectives (RAP) podcasts focusing on urgent care. We are primary care and constantly learning, growing, and developing new ways to bring you outstanding medical education. And we have you, our amazing audience, to thank for it.
Your feedback is incredibly important to us. We constantly upgrade and adapt our products to your needs. Lower-rated lectures and educators are changed out on-the-fly based on feedback from your colleagues - no joke. New advances in diagnosis and treatment are updated before you can say Hippocrates! And, any changes to the test or test topics are addressed right away. No waiting for a new version or edition.
We love hearing from you - good, bad, or a simple hello! Make sure to contact us to ask questions or send your comments.
